benjamin netanyahu, for example? >> i think, first of all, you have to see the government forms, and it will take some time. as i said, this is complicated, given the diversity of the parties, so i think once you see what the government is going to do, you have discussions with that government to see what they are prepared to do, and then you go to the palestinians to see what they are prepared to do. i think that is the focal point. but i think there is a larger issue at play that has to be addressed, and the mainstream in israel, even the centrists, they do not believe that they are committed. the mainstream among the palestinians do not believe that the israelis are committed to a two-state outcome. one thing the united states can do in a very helpful way is focus on what each side can do that could demonstrate their commitment is real. that could be a focus and an agenda of the discussions. >> shifting to the center.
